Police looking for woman involved in a crash with suspect June 11 on McNutt Rd.
Sunland Park, NM — Sunland Park Police are now looking for a woman who may have been involved in a traffic accident with the father accused of accidentally running over his 3-year-old while attempting to buy heroin last week.
SPPD says that their investigation has revealed that Daniel Orozco was involved in a crash at the intersection of McNutt and Sunland Park around 7:30 a.m. the morning of Wednesday, June 11.
Police believe that Orozco was on McNutt heading towards Racetrack and he backed into an unknown vehicle driven by a woman. The female driver that was hit by Orozco followed him and made contact with him. She also called 911, but the call could not be traced back or the number was not a working number.
The woman allegedly exchanged her information with Orozco and left the area. Now Sunland Park PD is asking for the woman to come forward and call Detective Amador Quintana. If you know who the woman involved in the crash with Orozco, please contact Detective Quintana at (575) 589-2225.
